Barrett in Paris and Normandy

Paris, the “City of Light,” is France’s capital, an international epicenter of art and culture, and the world’s number-one tourist destination. In summer 2020, Barrett students will have the opportunity to study art, literature, and history in this fascinating city, experiencing its famous sights—the River Seine, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Élysées—and stunning museums (the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Museum of Immigration). Guest lectures by local experts, and walking tours of diverse and historic neighborhoods, are also planned. In addition, participants will enjoy a four-day excursion to the region of Normandy, where they will visit such well-known sites as Monet’s gardens in Giverny, the D-Day beaches, and the monastery island of Mont Saint-Michel.
